Our Program


We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run is the name of our organization, but we have two programs:

  • Girls on the Run — for 3rd-5th graders (elementary school)
  • Heart & Sole — for 6th-8th graders (middle school)

The psychological research and principal philosophy behind both programs is the same, yet the depth of processing varies in order to be age appropriate. The Heart & Sole middle school curriculum allows for more mature processing around certain topics including eating disorders, internet safety, cyber bullying and tobacco and alcohol use.


  • To provide life-changing, high quality programs for girls
  • To provide life-changing and high quality experiences to the women developing and delivering the programs
  • To promote and provide an environment that allows girls and women to reach their full potential
  • To positively transform how girls and women perceive themselves and their place in society
